A British couple who scooped a record 190 million euros in the EuroMillions lottery said Tuesday that they would carry on running their music shop and try to give their children a normal upbringing. Adrian and Gillian Bayford, from Suffolk in eastern England, were the sole winners of the £149 million ($235 million) jackpot in Friday’s draw. The euro conversion rate means that while the prize is a record in euros, it is worth slightly less in pounds than the £161 million won by a Scottish couple in the EuroMillions in July last year. Revealing their identities at a press conference on Tuesday, the Bayfords said they intended to lavish some of their winnings on friends and family who had supported them in their early years of marriage.
